Connecting Early Career Researchers in Subduction Zone Science

Hello fans of subduction zones! 

We have been riding the buzz and excitement around SZ4Grads created during the SZ4D Community Meeting in Houston, so here are some updates on what we have been up to as well as some upcoming activities. 

  • We kicked off our 2023 Webinar Series with a DEI panel discussion joined by special guests Madeleine Lucas and Nicole Aikin from the University of Washington. Our upcoming 2023 Webinar Series, “International Voices in Subduction Zone Science” will feature talks highlighting the research of early-career scientists from the international community (early April, stay tuned). 

  • We started a Book Club to facilitate discussion and provide another opportunity for people to engage across the community. You can join the club in Slack - we would love to hear from you!
